Culture of Empathy Builder: Leah Green
 

Leah Green & Edwin Rutsch: Dialogs on How to Build a Culture of Empathy & Compassion

Leah Green is Founder and Executive Director of the Compassionate Listening Project. She has led 26 training delegations to Israel  & Palestine, speaks and writes about Middle East peace-building, and has produced three documentaries about the conflict. Contributor to the book: Practicing the Art of Compassionate Listening.

Leah shared many personal stories about the power of empathy and compassion. How to build a culture of empathy? Training, I just believe that we need to integrate programs starting in school - meaning preschool, kindergarten, whatever age...and consistently include these programs at every level. For parents, I also think it would be incredibly helpful if every family had to have “training” before they have children.  Sub Conference: Education
